It's an overcast day here in Lancaster County
today. We're supposed to have snow flurries
today - I am not ready for winter!
My computer has been slowly dying. It's been
making a loud roaring noise. I brought it to
the Geek Squad and the guy told me that it's
my motherboard - )o:
My daughter was visiting from NY and brought
a Laptop that I could use in the meantime.
My old computer won't read any of the CDs
that I have; so I decided to use the Laptop
to look at the old Cds and then store some of
the photos and files on a flash drive.
I found a couple of quilts that I had made
when I first started to quilt.
The photo is not very good; I took it with one
of those disposable cameras.
I took my first quilting class back in 2003 and
then joined my Guild at the end of that year.
In 2004 we had a challenge to make a Black and
White With A Touch of Red quilt. I forgot the size
that it had to be but I know that I went over about
2 inches. I was frustrated that I had to cut off part
of my quilt on the right side which changed the
whole look of it. I was so frustrated that when
the challenge was over - I threw it into the garbage!
I was so sorry that I did that I could have learned
so much from my mistakes! So now I'm glad that
I found this photo so that maybe someday I can
do something similar and better.
Here's another one from that same year. It has
some 3 dimensional flowers and also the butterfly.
The next year was the first quilt that I gave away.
I was so nervous because it was for my cousin's
baby shower. I didn't know if she would like it.
Well, she loved it and stood up and walked around
to show everyone. I was relieved! It's a bento box
pattern that I just loved.
Again, the photo was taken with a disposable
camera. That God for digital!
It was fun going through all my old photos.
BEING CREATIVE IS NOT A HOBBY IT'S A WAY OF LIFE
